Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Our March 9th Guild Meeting (7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska) will include a program by Cynthia Stary Drajna from Traer, Iowa. Cynthia owned Iowa Star Quilts quilt shop for many years, but closed it a few years back to concentrate on designing quilt patterns. You can see some of her patterns at: http://www.quiltwoman.com/Cynthia-Stary-Drajna-Iowa-Star-Quilts.aspx.
Cynthia will bring us a trunk show featuring sashing and border ideas, and a little something extra, namely ROMANCE. You won't want to miss this program.
Check the current newsletter link on this page to find out what else is going on with our Guild. We will have a BIG something going on in 2016 when we sponsor a Bonnie Hunter event. Mark your calendars now for April 23rd and 24th, 2016, for a weekend of classes and an evening trunk show program with Bonnie of Quiltville fame!
We'll see you on March 9th.
We hope to see you at our February 9th Guild meeting at 7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church in Sioux City.
See the current newsletter for information about the Guild meeting and some of the Guild's activities.
And from the Guild's Facebook page, a reminder that it's only 8 days until the Quiltin' Bee on February 7th. It's going to be an amazing day of fun and we are going to raise a bunch of money for the Patient Assistance Program at June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Tell your friends to come and shop at the Quilty Rummage sale, put in some bids at the Small Quilt Auction and the Silent Auction. Feb. 7th, 9 a.m. at the Moville Community Center. See you there.
Our Guild doesn't send out a newsletter for January, so this is your reminder for our next Guild meeting, Monday, January 12th at 7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska. The program for January will feature a meet and greet for the Siouxland Sampler Quilt Guild members who are art quilters.
If you are on the 2015 Quilt Show committee, that meeting will start at 6:00 pm on the 12th.
Also, remember to bring along your 2015 membership dues and membership form if you haven't paid them already.
If you haven't been to a Guild meeting with us yet, we welcome you to join us, and feel free to bring along a friend!
Happy New Year!
